WIP, Assembly & Staging Inventory Flow Optimized with Floor Mounted Pallet Flow
Our latest 3D animated product video shines the light on the benefits of the pallet jack access ramp – a Mallard engineered application for pallet flow. The ramp is a creative, cost-efficient solution that allows a pallet jack to access floor-mounted pallet flow in work-in-process (WIP), assembly or staging operations. The order selector simply walks the pallet jack up the ramp which is custom designed to the elevation of a pallet flow lane to access and extract a pallet.
Floor-mounted pallet flow in WIP, assembly and/or staging areas minimizes travel and organizes inventory while maximizing warehouse space and productivity flow. Accessing the pallet flow lanes with a pallet jack for pallet extraction further reduces warehouse traffic, equipment costs, and labor expense.
Pallet flow is simply a better tool than bulk stacking for optimizing floor space and managing inventory and processing costs. And the pallet jack is much more nimble, fast and affordable than a forklift. The combination of the two increases safety and efficiency while reducing costs in staging and assembly areas.
Ramps are manufactured using a heavy-duty galvanized material and then “textured” to provide a grip surface that prevents pallet jacks and operators from slipping while entering or extracting a pallet.
Pallet Jack Access Ramp Benefits:
- Simplified floor-mounted pallet flow access
- Customizable ramp height and configuration
- Eliminate the need for forklifts in WIP, assembly and staging areas
- Reduce travel time and equipment/labor costs vs bulk stacking
- Made with durable, galvanized steel with slip-free textured surface
